Why are people forgetting about Rybarikova from retirement.Maybe
Venus (39, 40 this year)
Sabine Lisicki (30)
WTA 2020 season seems almost cancelled to me
The players who wanted to retire at end of 2020 season could extend until end of 2021.
Andrea Petkovic said so already. And maybe Strycova, Navarro, Parmentier and Minella too?
Wozniacki, Sharapova and Grönefeld chose the perfect moment to retire
Directly before this horrible devastating Coronavirus crisis.
Yes if she doesn't know what safe sex is.
There is a big difference between “knowing” what safe sex is, and “practicing” safe sex. But this discussion is probably getting a bit too “personal” if we are citing the Baby Olympia case.She even admitted that the baby wasn't the plan.
Tennis players always complain that they can't have proper vacations. Now is the time to watch Netflix all day long and do their part. It's infuriating to see players still training outdoors without any regard for society, especially if it isn't even done in the country they represent or list as their residence.I think there's also a factor of 'why train?' right now? Like what are they actually training FOR at this point - with no actual knowledge of when the tour will resume. It's like they're having a big long off season (which most players hate), potentially for no tennis to actually be played until a while in the future.
To me it's very strange that she's not announced a retirement, and she has also given 0 indication that she intends to back a comeback. I would think a character and popular player like Jelena would say something for her fans.I just wonder if Jelena Jankovic will ever comeback. Other players, more or less, we know their efforts and involvement in the tour but Jelena is such a mistery
All this. They'll never take tennis for granted, and realize how lucky they are to hit a ball for a living, now that sports is the last thing society cares about now.Maybe but I also expect the opposite. You hear a lot from players who are forced to stay off the court due to injuries how much they start missing the game and how they feel mentally refreshed and with a newfound love for the sport when they return. I expect a lot of players to be aching to be back on court (even apart from financial considerations).
If you have no experience with it you don't know but competing is such a thrilling and addictive feeling.
I'll never understand people who want players to retire. It's their decision to make, their injuries and bodies make the call, not anyone else.Any WTA player over 30 or has a child should surely consider retiring. It makes sense and no one will question their reasoning. Are you listening Serena, Vika, Serena, Stosur??????
Isn‘t a vaccine @18 months away? Serena, Kim, Venus and Vika won’t be around on tour then.Sure. Venus and Collins have to be very careful. Maybe Serena and Kim, who are older and have kids, have to rethink it.
It also depends on the vaccine. If it has no side effects and works well, life can be back to normal son after its out.
But right now, tennis seems very dangerous, all the flying and all the tournaments have people who flew from far distances.
Rybarikova only would have played the Fed Cup Finals this year.Why are people forgetting about Rybarikova from retirement.
I meant when people say that Wozniacki and Sharapova retired at the right time.Rybarikova only would have played the Fed Cup Finals this year.
And only doubles there, NOT singles.
The Slovak tennis boss had to convince Magda to make herself available for Fed Cup doubles.
And so she only said yes for him.
A big difference to the other players (Petkovic, Strycova, Navarro, Parmentier and Minella) who wanted to play the whole 2020 season in singles and only wanted to retire at the end of the season.
